[504c]

Socrates
I do. And what, again, to the effect produced in the soul by regularity and order? Try to find the name here, and tell it me as before.

Callicles
Why not name it yourself, Socrates ?

Socrates
Well, if you prefer it, I will; and do you, if I seem to you to name it rightly, say so; if not, you must refute me and not let me have my way. For it seems to me that any regularity of the body is called healthiness, and this leads to health being produced in it, and general bodily excellence. Is that so or not?

Callicles
It is.
